Holy moley! I don't think this guitar will appeal to anyone that likes "subtle" or "understated". This is easily one of the craziest looking Explorers I've ever seen. This is custom colored 1984 Explorer with the classic 3 in line control configuration and pickguard. How many did they make? Not many I would guess. Maybe just this one. Super rare as the color is definitely amazing but the fact that the specs are based on the classic 1976 Explorer as opposed to the Kahler, no pickguard, etc things they were doing then leads credence to the idea that someone special ordered it this way. It’s not an E2, it doesn’t have a Kahler and it’s always had a pickguard. Much cooler and more desirable than the shredder Explorers that Gobson was making at the time. Dual Dirty Finger humbuckers deliver big tone. Gibson branded tuners, Tuneomatic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece keep it rock solid. The finish is an incredible green metallic burst. There’s nothing I’ve seen quite like it. Absolutely wild looking and incredible under stage lights. This could be the centerpiece of your guitar collection as well as being an incredible stage guitar!
This Explorer plays great and has excellent tone. The neck is straight, the frets are good and the action is low. The pickups sound great with razor sharp highs, big lows and incredible output. A great rock or metal guitar. This is a solid used guitar in good condition for its age. Overall VG condition, it shows normal scratches, dents, dings, and chips. The finish shows some checking which adds to the vibe. No breaks, cracks or repairs. Comes in a Gibson hardshell case.
This is one of the coolest looking Gibsons I've had in stock in recent memory. You won't be able to find anything quite like this anywhere. Super rare and perhaps the wildest thing I currently have in stock.
